    Pros

    Everyday you learn something new to help you become a better associate/ manager. Also, meeting new people whether it’s customers or new associates.

    Cons

    The pay would be a downfall for them. Yes different volume store you get different pay but ours was still low for us. The bonus’ you got were also taxed so you got half of that which was a downfall.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Amazing work environment. I became best friends with my coworkers and actually looked forward to going to work because it was fun working with my coworkers

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for growth. I started the job when I was 15 and stayed until I was 18, but it just felt like I had been doing the same things over and over for 3 years. Hard to turn it into an actual career. Also the pay wasn't that good

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The overall environment was very welcoming and i thought they had a great rewards program for customers and employees. The training was thorough and detailed and there was patience and understanding. Customers were happy almost all the time and i looked forward to work each day.

    Cons

    Sometimes the upper district management wasn’t the most organized. It could take weeks just for one order to go through, stuff was backed up a lot. Sometimes it would seem like too much work was expected in short time frames but we managed to pull off the impossible.

    Advice to Management

    I think coming up with a better strategy for the transfers of clothes and old products would help to save a lot of time on the floor. Just about everything else was likable.

    Pros

    The people were all very friendly
    The pay seemed fair to good for the work/region
    There was a nice mix of getting up from your desk and moving around and sitting in one spot getting stuff done.
    Company was in a dicey spot financially speaking but have done a great job of turning it around

    Cons

    Security for the building can get on your back about stuff, but nothing out of the ordinary
    Low opportunity for career growth in Olathe- they don't seem shy about promotions.
    Even though they've made up a lot of lost ground, there's still the stigma of financial issues sometimes. Not really much of a concern though.
